Space age, and with it the era of earth observation, is generally considered to have begun more than 50 years ago with the launch of Sputnik-1 on 4 October 1957 (Kramer, 2002). Sputnik’s beeping radio signals did not only serve to demonstrate the technological capabilities of the Soviet Union, they were also used to gather information about the electron density of the ionosphere. In legacy of Sputnik, most of the Earth observation satellite missions that were to follow served multiple purposes… CONTINUE READING
